We had a clear day in East Tennessee today. It was an amazing sight.

Here's an overall shot of the totality. This was taken with my little OMD EM10 and Samyang 7.5mm Fisheye lens (a VERY wide lens).

You can see the 360 degree sunset that surrounded the eclipse.

LOL! Exactly what I was thinking while shooting towards the end of it.

Here are two of my shots from Hiwassee, Georgia. It was an absolutely amazing experience!
In some of my pictures I believe I've captured a star too, but I'm not sure.

You were there too?? Where? I was off Bell Creek Road looking back toward the main bridge as you come into town on 76.

Did you guys see the shot of the space station passing in front of the sun. That was pretty cool!

I saw it in other peoples images. After seeing it I looked for it in my pictures but did not see it. I think my problem is we had way too many clouds, along with other times fairly clear skies. I took pictures every 10 seconds from before it started until it was over with, over 1200 pictures, but ended up with 800 because of the cloud cover. :-(

4 of my photos from Douglas Wyoming can be seen here:

http://www.7hillsobs.o​rg/photos.html (external link)

I used a Canon 7DMK2 with a 500mm f4 IS L V1 Gitzo carbon fiber sticks, Markins Q20 head, and remote release. I used the Eclipse photo guide here:

http://mreclipse.com/S​Ephoto/SEphoto.html (external link)

The HDR corona was produced with 5 images of a 7 shot bracket. 400 ISO f5.6 1/2000, 1/640/, 1/200, 1/60, 1/6, 1/2 sec. I did not use the last 2 exposures. There was a lot of scattering in the air due to smoke from western wild fires. The 1/2 sec exposure was used for the earthshine photo. The 2 diamond ring photos were taken at 100 ISO 1/60 sec f8.

I have lots more photos to process including prominences and inner corona, but I am too busy too busy trying to catch up with stuff I have been neglecting for eclipse preparation. It was worth it! Enjoy!

I had a lot of fun photographing the total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017. I'd never been to a total eclipse before, and I never tried to photograph one. I wanted to get this one! I did a lot of research, came up with my plan, and practiced it frequently. For me, it paid off. Here are my results.

Just before first contact:

50% partial eclipse:

The last crescent I took before the Diamond Ring:

The Diamond Ring (about 30 seconds after the previous shot):

Baily's Beads (8 seconds after the diamond ring). The sun is shining through the valleys between mountains.

Start of totality (just 3 seconds after Baily's Beads):

Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.

This is the corona at totality. It's a blend of two photos. Note the little white dot near the lower left corner of the image. It's the star Regulus (thanks to Mark Urwiller for the correction).

Jim,

The star in your photograph is Regulus - Alpha Leonis - not Mercury, but your photos are very nice!

Great photo! To me, these are 1000x more amazing than the sun itself (just a black circle over a yellow or white one). Looks like a nice place to sit back and take in the view.

My composite shot.

I made a critical error and bumped focus ring when removing my filter during totality. I noticed it about 5 or so minutes after totality ended.

Hopefully I'll have another shot at this in 7 years. :)
